Jørn Utzon won the international architectural competition for the creation of the Sydney Opera House in 1957. It’s a brilliant and thoroughly considered work that justifiably made him an icon of 20th century architecture. Jorn Utzon saw a clear parallel between music and light. Both are crucial for feeling emotions. In developing his designs for Lightyears, he worked to ensure that light constantly promotes the atmosphere of a room, whether it is used for cosy togetherness, for a particular function or for sheer inspiration.The design of his first lamp for Lightyears draws a golden thread from the Sydney Opera House. It completes the picture of Jorn Utzon as a lamp designer and architect of highest international stature.
